Yarn Along 22

I'm joining in Ginny's Yarn Along this week.

With August just around the corner, I'm excited to announce the Project: Stash Charity KAL prize to (re)inspire you to cast on a Miranda Hat next month.  I know I've said this before, but knitters are truly the most generous folks and as more of you join our Ravelry group and knit along, I'm in constant awe of what we're capable of!


So, listen, if you're just learning about the charity KAL now, it's not too late to join.  For those who are already members but haven't cast on yet, I hope I can entice you to knit a Miranda Hat in August to be eligible for a wonderful prize.  Pumpkin of Pumpkin Spins is generously donating a skein of one of her gorgeous (and I mean gor-geous!) hand-spun yarns!  We haven't selected the one yet but head on over to Pumpkin's blog, click on Fiber Goals for 2012, and feast your eyes on her talent and skills!  I'll be announcing, with photos, the actual prize next month.


In the meantime, I'm going to leave you with a few beautiful images of Miranda Hats that have already been knitted in July. The colors and fibers that knitters have chosen are perfect for the chilly months of winter and it is great to know that so many folks will be getting one of these hats to ward off the cold!  This is just a tiny sample ... many, many more are posted on the forum. I was so excited to post this today that I didn't get a chance to ask permission to include these photos so to you wonderful knitters below, I hope you don't mind and thanks in advance!

Gosh, I got so excited about posting this announcement today that I almost forgot to mention that I'm half-way through The Ghost at the Table and loving it.

    1. There are 48 Miranda Hats on the pattern projects page with 64 in queues but I don't think everyone has linked their FOs to the pattern page. I think there's more than that!!

  6. I am fairly new at knitting. This pattern looks fairly easy, it may be my first attempt at knitting a hat. First I have to finish the shawl I have on my # 6 needles. Thanks for the pattern.

  17. Love the rainbow of hats the 'workers' have been creating. I will have a look at the pattern soon. I am usually lazy when it comes to hats and just knit without a pattern.
    Thanks for the invitation.
